Description:
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Created in 1977, CMS brought together the two largest Federal health care programs, Medicare and Medicaid under a unified leadership. In 1997, the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) was established to address the health care needs of uninsured children. With a current budget of over $650 billion and serving approximately 90 million beneficiaries, CMS has become the largest purchaser of health care in the United States.
